Within these pages the reader will find the mostly true ramblings, mid-life musings, and occasional opinion offerings of a secondary teacher. Teachers of teenagers might resonate with the stories, future teachers might gain insight before entering the classroom, and non-teachers might get a glimpse into the classified life of a certified teacher. Hopefully, all readers will find humor and hope. All stories are based on actual events, but all names and some details have been altered for literary purposes and for the protection of the innocent, as well as the author’s widening posterior. After all, the author would like to retire someday, not be fired tomorrow, and definitely not end up on the news tonight.

About the Author
Just a little bit about me... I was very fortunate and married my best friend almost twenty years ago. We have two amazing teenage sons and live deep in the woods among the mountain lions and bears. Our fearless English Mastiff, a.k.a. Couch Baby, protects our home just about as well as his nickname implies, but we adore him anyway. For over twenty years I have been a secondary art teacher. In the beginning, I was a middle school teacher, and for many years, I have been a high school teacher. More years ago than I can count, I received a bachelor's degree in fine arts with a concentration in education. Just about ten years ago, I received a master's degree in education with a specialization in curriculum, instruction and assessment.
